Extraordinary Aviation Footage

Here are a couple flying stories I stumbled across. Amazing. The first is from World War II. I had no idea that Americans in the Air Corps flew Spitfires. Certainly none of my RAF squadron mates ever disclosed that!

This one also escaped my USAFA military history class. Strange in that during our doolie summer history indoctrination classes, we were shown lots of footage of Israeli Air Force victories in the 1967 war.
